More about Rachel Zelaya

Hi Friend! I am so glad you're here. If you want an experience like the HGTV show "Fixer Upper" or "Property Brothers", then you have come to the right place! I have been "flipping houses" in Virginia, Washington, DC, and Maryland since 2011 and I want to help YOU do the same (but to live in, of course). I will assist you in getting approved for a renovation loan, negotiate an excellent purchase price for your home, customize your renovation budget, design your new home, and work with contractors to make your dream a reality. If you want to learn more about my process and how I can help you, give me a call or shoot me an email. Cheers! -Rachel

                I'm a 30 year veteran real estate investor who chose Rachel Zelaya to list a property for me because of her vast experience with investment properties and her expertise as a realtor. Rachel did a fantastic job assisting me with the sale of my investment property.

She will get you the highest price possible and make the entire experience easy on you.

                • I would highly recommend working with Rachel. She was very knowledgeable with the market in Arlington and Alexandria, as well as seeing the potential in various properties. We explored different houses with her until we found just the right one. She helped us negotiate, purchase, and fully renovate our new home into exactly what we wanted. We were living overseas at the time and her attention to detail, patience, and quick responses were excellent to work with. We would definitely work with her again and are glad to have found her!

                • As new homebuyers, Rachel made it a very effortless and easy process for us. Without previous understanding in the process of buying a home, she was there for us through every step, making sure we understood everything very clearly. I would HIGHLY recommend her. Within 3 days, we saw the home and put in an offer before it was ever listed. She did such an incredible job and we are so grateful and happy with our purchase. SHE IS THE BEST
